Since the last two videos I've posted, yesterday afternoon and this morning, both dealt with cold, icy conditions, why not make it a threefer?
The De Weerribben-Wieden National Park in the Netherlands is the largest bog in north-western Europe. It was used for peat production before the Second World War. This has left large segments of open, very shallow water throughout the bog. Naturally, these freeze over in cold winters, offering wonderful opportunities for long-distance ice skating.
Here are some Dutch skaters taking full advantage of this year's cold weather. Watch the video in full-screen mode for best results.
Beautiful scenery! It looks like they're having a great time. Personally, I think I'd prefer to stay warmer than that . . .
